The Cultural Center, both space, and staff serve as resources to the entire Miami community including international students, faculty, and staff at Miami University. The Cultural Center (formerly the Center for Black Culture and Learning) is a space that provides a forum for the exploration of diversity, equity and inclusion for the campus at-large. The Cultural Center space serves as a computer lab and meeting space for diverse students and organizations. The Cultural Center is known for the variety of small group discussions such as the Let’s Talk, Barbershop Talks, and Sister Circle series as well as the many meetings that are held within the space. Led by the Cultural Center staff, the Cultural Center is responsible for developing, cultivating and creating initiatives and programs that enhance a sense of belonging, leadership development, and understanding across difference for students of color, and diverse student organizations at Miami University.

The Cultural Center staff uses a collaborative approach with developing initiatives for diverse students. A few offices that the Cultural Center has collaborated with include The Center for Career Exploration & Success, Educational Leadership Department, The Office of Community Engagement & Service, Student Counseling Service, Goggin Ice Arena, Oxford Faded Barbershop, Student Activities, and The Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life.
